Lectures & Conferences
In March, MetroWest Climate Solutions will offer a two-part series featuring the Senate and House Chairs of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy (TUE) at the State House. The Committee’s jurisdiction covers a range of issues including cell phones, alternative energy, public utility reform, and carbon pricing. These sessions offer a unique opportunity to hear from some of the State’s most influential legislators on climate legislation. We anticipate robust Q&A periods at the conclusion of these programs.
On March 2 at 7 p.m., State Senator Mike Barrett and Professor Chris Knittel from MIT Sloan School of Management will present an overview and discussion of proposed climate and energy legislation being considered during this session at the State House.
